As Harper’s Playground continues to raise money for the redesign of Chelsea Anderson Memorial Play Station at Marshall Park, the deadline to purchase a recognition brick or paver has been extended to Feb. 21. The nonprofit is currently around $400,000 short of its $3.2 million goal for the playground redesign, which is projected to open late this spring, according to a press release.

“We’re thrilled with the community support received thus far, and look forward to the final funding coming in the form of personalized bricks and pavers,” said G Cody QJ Goldberg, Harper’s Playground co-founder and chief play officer. “The space becomes so much more meaningful when community members own it and take part in it. The playground will be filled with special messages from people on these bricks and pavers.”

The redesign of Chelsea Anderson Memorial Play Station at Marshall Park will expand accessibility to meet the social, emotional and physical needs of people of all ages and abilities, according to Goldberg. The redesigned park will feature a wide array of accessible equipment.
